Hitman: Absolution gets pre-order bonus game

Hitman sequel preorders to include bonus "experience" Hitman: Sniper Challenge; out on May 15 on console, August 1 on PC.


Square Enix has announced downloadable, standalone "experience" Hitman: Sniper Challenge as a pre-order bonus for the upcoming Hitman: Absolution, the latest in IO Interactive's stealth action assassination series. Those who pre-order Hitman: Absolution on PC, Xbox 360, or PlayStation 3 from certain retailers will get access to the bonus sniping experience on May 15 on console and August 1 on PC.

The publisher calls Hitman: Sniper Challenge a "standalone 'hit' in the Hitman universe¥intended as separate content for fans to enjoy whilst waiting for Hitman: Absolution to be released." In the assassination mission, Agent 47 must dispatch a weapons company executive and his bodyguards.

Hitman: Sniper Challenge will let players unlock the Silenced Agency Kazo TRG for use in the main Hitman: Absolution game, as well as "a further 12 weapon techniques." The challenge will also feature online global, national, and friends leaderboards.

Players who have already pre-ordered Hitman: Absolution can claim a code for Sniper Challenge if they placed their pre-order with a participating retailer. The full list of participating retailers can be found on the official site, www.hitman.com. Those who cancel their pre-orders will still be able to play Sniper Challenge.

Hitman: Absolution is due for release this fall on PS3, PC, and Xbox 360.
